Cancana Announces Closing of US$1.5 Million Convertible Debenture Financing

TORONTO, ONTARIO--(Marketwired - Dec. 23, 2014) - Cancana Resources Corp. (TSX VENTURE:CNY) (the "Company" or "Cancana") is pleased to announce that further to its press release dated December 22, 2014 (the "December 22 Release"), it has closed a US$1.5 million financing (approximately C$1,746,450) through the issuance of a secured convertible debenture (the "Convertible Debenture") to Ferrometals BV ("Ferrometals").

The Convertible Debenture has a term of 3 years and is non-interest bearing. The principal shall be convertible at the option of Ferrometals, in whole or in part, into common shares in the capital of the Company ("Common Shares") at a price of C$0.175 per Common Share. The Convertible Debenture and any Common Shares issuable upon conversion of the Convertible Debenture are subject to a four (4) month and one (1) day statutory hold commencing from the date of issuance of the Convertible Debenture. Assuming the conversion of the Convertible Debenture in full, Ferrometals will own approximately 53.3% of Cancana, calculated on a partially diluted basis assuming the conversion of the Convertible Debenture only.

Of the proceeds from the sale of the Convertible Debenture, US$192,000 will be used to pay certain costs associated with the restructuring of the ownership of mining tenements formerly held by M.L.B. de Nogueira - E.P.P. ("MLB") currently held by Cancana Brasil Mineração Ltda. ("Cancana Brazil"), Cancana's wholly-owned Brazilian subsidiary. In addition, approximately US$345,000 will be used to pay certain tax expenses associated with the cost of the transfer of the shares of Cancana Brazil to Brazil Manganß║╜s Corporation Mineração S.A. ("BMC") (formerly Rio Madeira Comércio Importação e Exportação de Minérios Ltda.) as disclosed in the December 22 Release. The balance of the net proceeds from the sale of the Convertible Debenture shall be used by the Company for general working capital purposes.
